What Do You Get?

I’m a Professional Tennis Player, and my guests are other young people trying to make their dreams happen. Follow along to hear what our lives are really like!

Last time Dez was on the show, he was an undrafted Free Agent trying to make the Jacksonville Jaguars as a Safety out of UNC Charlotte. A year and change later, after countless tryouts for NFL and CFL scouts, and even a stint in NASCAR, Dez has just signed a 2 year contract with the Montreal Allouettes! He's heading up North in April, but hard at work training to make sure this time he sticks around the team. This is a huge opportunity for Dez, and he feels like it could be the last chance he'll get. Hope you enjoy Part 1 of my interview with Dez, and please reach out to me on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter to keep the conversation going!

Mitchell Quilleon Brown aka Kid Quill is a 22 year old rapper from Indiana who just graduated from DePauw University and has already charted Billboard. His most recent album, "The Name Above The Title", reached the Top 10 in iTunes for Hip Hop/Rap and he's about to start his first nationwide Tour tomorrow! Mitch and I talk about how a viral YouTube video got him started, self-fulfillment and passion keep him going, and even how many girls from his High School try to hit him up now that he's a rapper. I first heard Kid Quill while I was playing a Tournament in Ecuador, and his music just helped me stay in a good mood on the road; his lyrics are something I can really relate to. I was pumped to get to talk to him, I'm sure there are big things ahead for him; reach out to either of us by clicking the link below to keep the conversation going!

Mike "Popezilla" Pope is an MMA fighter, and current CFFC Lightweight Champion of the World! I met Mike while he was working at GNC in Jacksonville, Florida before he became the CFFC Champion. I couldn't believe he was funding his career by working at GNC and teaching MMA/Jiu Jitsu classes so I asked him to do a podcast and tell me his story. A few weeks after he won the biggest fight of his career we met up, got a coffee, and did this episode. Mike has an unbelievable story, and is on his way to being a regular MMA fighter, I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I did!

Sebastian Serrano is a 29 year old tennis player from Cartagena, Colombia. He graduated from East Tennessee State University in 2008, and played Futures and Challengers for 5 years, reaching a career high of #720 in Singles and #482 in the ATP Rankings. He's won three Futures Doubles Titles in his career. Because of injuries and lack of finances, he quit his playing career and moved to Boston, Massachusetts where he taught tennis at a country club for two years. He said he became bored and depressed while teaching, so with the support of his wife and a newfound belief in God he has started his professional career again and is almost a year into it! He plays with new meaning now, and has a lot to say to any younger players that will listen!

Chris Hanson graduated Cum Laude from Dartmouth in 2013 with a Psychology Degree. At Dartmouth he was a 3-Time First Team All-American and a 4-Time First Team All-Ivy, I wish the list stopped there. But as a professional he's won 3 PSA World Tour Titles and right now sits at a career high world ranking of #66!

Chris and I are the same age and have a lot in common because we both play individual sports, it was great to know someone else feels the same way about life trying to make it as a professional athlete! A big shout out to Chris for doing this episode with me, as well as to our mutual clothing sponsor, Boast!
